look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

I had been looking to try this one for some time, and finally got the chance. (I had high expectations coming into this)

A-Poured into a Weizen glass, a huge light-tan head erupts (even with a very gentle pour) and it becomes quite obvious that this is a wheat beer. Medium brown in color, appears acorn when held up to the light.

S-While initially there wasn't much here, as it warms some scents of banana, clove, and...cigarette smoke(?) become evident.

T-Lively carbonation with spice and some alcohol initially, which fades into a strong but pleasant banana flavour with some spices towards the back of the tongue...

M-Syrupy, which coats the tongue...

D-If not for the relatively high ABV, it would be highly drinkable...

Great beer, which met if not surpassed my expectations.

Note: The banana flavours fade into the background as it warms, and are replaced with a bold malty taste, with some alcohol.

T - delicious - tastes of wheat, banana, and a strong grape presence as well.
M - full, creamy, and smooth, with a very mildly dry finish

Pours a rusty amber with a thick and creamy, beige-colored head that slowly fades to a rimming of foam.

Aromas of banana, cloves, malt, dark fruits and spice.

Opens with suggestions of prunes and raisins, followed by flavors of banana, cloves, allspice and candied malts. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Hints of peach and vanilla surface before returning to brown sugar and spice. Complex malt character with the soul of a dessert bread. ABV is well concealed. Finishes with a smack of wheat.

Nice dark red/purple color with a fair amount of fizzy tan head. Smell is some wacky combination of licorice, orange, lemon, pepto bismol, cinnamon, and pepper. More licorice and pepper in the taste, but cloves is definitely the spice that starts to come out strongest as the beer wears on. Very drinkable and interesting. I'm fairly new to this style but I enjoy this one.

*2003 vintage*

Found a bottle of this at Julio's on sale for $8.99 per. Figured I would give it a try, after looking it up I was quite pleased with my purchase. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a deep, dark nut brown mahongany colour with a light, fluffy one finger head that faded to leave no lacing whatsoever.

S - Wow, just lovely. Great dark fruit aromas, mostly raisins and super sweet malts. Not getting much yeast aromas at all, just dark fruits and that sticky sweet malt.

T - Very similar to the nose. Theres that nice sweet malts upfront with those delicious dark fruit tastes, dominated by a raisin flavour. The alcohol is still present in this, which is fine. That sweetness is almost cloy, but not there yet.

M - Nice mouthfeel, low carbonation thanks to the lengthy aging process of this. Its almost syrupy due to how sweet it is. This has become a dessert!

D - This is quite delicious and I'd love to have this again.Would love to try this with 10 years on it. Stuff is delicious really but a definate sipper. Tasty, great aroma, definate must try.

Upon listening to my buddy Sulldaddy tell me over and over again that this is his favorite brew, I finally broke down and bought a bottle.

Pouring it into my goblet, it poured a dark brown w/ hints of reds in there as well. It left a very fizzy head that quickly jumped over the rim of my glass, but just as quickly fizzled to absolute nothingness in my glass. Smelling it, I first got a sense of soy sauce from a foot or so away, but when really getting my nose into it, I got lots of brown malty tones, not as much as I would hope from a Weizen, but nice overall. I also got the smell of some nuts, fruit (raisins maybe) or some rasberries w/ chocolate.

Tasting it, I first thought it was very malty and deep in flavor w/ plums and citrus flavors. However, as I took a few more sips I felt it tasted more like bitter rasberry chocolate. As I swallowed it, I got the slight taste of a clove cigarette that spiced it up a bit (nice touch).

Pretty light in body, it drank rather easily and the taste helped that happen. It was a nice crisp beer even at room temp, with nice carbonation that tickled my tongue. It also left a nice aftertaste as I said before.

Drinkable??? As Stone Cold once said..."OH, HELL YEAH!!!!"

Got this beer from PapaEugene, who brought it from Germany. Thnx! Had this beer in my Westvleteren glass during the first NHL match of the 2009-2010 season (go Montreal!!). The beer pours a medium-brown color with a light brown colored head, that changed into a nice stable lacing.

Smell: very promising, strong sweet fruits (clear banana and some dark fruits), clear malted barley, yeast and some spicy hops. There is something else in it, sweet caramel maybe (or is it butterscotch as mentioned by PapaEugene...).

Taste: Roasted malts and wheats are immediately there, dark fruits (plum??), citrus fruits (orange zest), bit semi spicy hops (much less spicy than in the nose) and not as sweet as expected based on the smell. Fresh wheat taste as well, with some alcohol in the mostly bitter finish

Mouthfeel: High carbonation, I think this beer would be even better with a little bit less.... Medium-bodied. Very drinkable.

Overall: I really like this beer, one of the
best German beers I had until now. Thanks PapaEugene, please bring me some more next time!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served at cellar temp and poured into my Tripel Karmeliet glass.

Appearance is good. Dark purple colored brew that's hard to see through, although can if you look hard enough. Fast carbonation bubbles rise to the large thick pearl white head. After the brew settles for a bit, the head dies down to a very thin soapy film.

Smell is very good. Deep aroma of fresh wheat and sweet candied malts. Bubblegum and banana.

Taste is very good. Very much like the smell; banana and bubblegum with sugary malts. Frosted min-wheats cereal. Aftertaste is yellow-apple and pear-like. Very complex for the style.

Mouthfeel is good. Spicy on the palate. Medium to light body. Finishes tingly with a small burn. Slightly over-carbonated.

Drinkability is good. Another one or two would be ok before the carbonation took it's toll on my palate.

Overall: A classic example of the style and a brew I admittedly over-look when searching for a sweet rich brew. After this time around i don't see that happening again. Recommended

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A: Hazy dark brown with a quickly dissipating foam head that turns to quick lacing. Carbonation bubbles are constantly coming up.

S: Fruity with caramel and bread hints.

T: Very complex, I'm not even sure how to describe it I'll try the best I can. Cloves, bread, caramel, fruity and slight hops at the end. Some alcohol taste is present. Cloves aftertaste.

M: Medium carbonation, Full bodied. Very easy to down.

O: Very very interesting complex beer. I don't think my tongue is sophisticated enough to describe this properly, but boy this is good.

Poured from the bottle into a weissbier glass.

Appearance is a murky brown with a big, fluffly white head.

Smell is amazing. Dark, deep malts. Tons of wheat, bit of fruitiness.

Taste is dark, fruity malts up front. Bit of banana, lots of spiciness. Absolutely no bitterness, just sweet, wheaty goodness.

Mouthfeel is highly carbonated, but still pretty thick and viscous.

Drinkability is great, amazingly solid for a beer at around 8% alcohol.

Poured this brew into a large weizen glass and it poured out slowly and appeared syrup-colored brown w/ very little head but a lot of carbonation. One whiff is overpowering with a malty slant but with citrus and spicey/yeasty overtones. There is a very hoppy bite when it first hits your tongue, but it is somewhat thin-bodies and balanced out w/ a touch of peppery spices, a nice part sweet/dark malts and some citrus fruit and a yeastiness to boot - overall a very smooth beer. Only the high ABV (the alcohol is hidden well) limit this from a session beer.

What a great looking beer. Extremely rough and unfiltered. You get the sense that this beer looks just like those consumed hundreds of years back. Pours a very murky and muddly brown. Not overly dark but a bit cloudy. Loads of sediment only add to the allure There's a pretty nice head and a bit of lacing to match The truly great aspect of this beer's appearance however, lies in the rawness. Very intense.

The smell is one of complex sweetness and spice. Nothing mindblowing, but pleasant if not intrigueing nonetheless.

Tasting this organic brew was not the slightest bit disappointing. Incredibly smooth, presenting some mild fruit (pear, banana, non-citrus) initially, and providing an almost cinammon/milmint-like spice toward the end (the bottle claims clove). Finishes extremely cleanly with a very pleasant and balanced yeastiness. The alcohol never interferes with the smoothness, yet does manage to add a pleasant "glow" toward the end (hence the 8.00% abv).

You just want to deliberately sip this brew over and over again to extract out all the greatness. Precisely what a German bier should be. Makes me want to move back. G schneider und Sohn sollen rightig stolz auf dieses Bier sein.

500 ml bottle, no date
Aroma: The banana smell of Weihenstephan yeast with the slightest hint of alcohol.
Appearance: A dark, clear brown beer with a fine head of white that stays long into the beer.
Flavor: Again, the primary taste is the Weihenstephan banana like yeast that fades into a rich, dark wheat malt aftertaste. A very rich tasting beer with a loooong aftertaste. Even my burps have that banana aroma (sorry, but they do). No real sign of the alcohol that was hinted at in the nose.
Mouthfeel: The carbonation holds long into the beer. Some warming late into the beer, it is 8% after all.
Overall: Very enjoyable example of the variety the reinheitsgebot purity law can offer. A well made, dark, rich beer that satisfies. You could drink more than one, but one scratched my beer itch. Highly recommended.

Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – The beer was served as a hazy medium brown color with a thin off white head. The head had a moderate persistence fading to leave a nice level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a brown bread smell with tons of darker fruit notes. For the fruit, raisin, plum, and a lighter cherry flavor are all there. With these aromas is a good hint of booze and a light amount of yeast and banana.

Taste – The taste begins heaviest of the darker fruit flavors of raisin and plum with a more subdued brown bread taste mixed within. As the taste advances some light banana flavors as well as a wheat and yeasty flavor coming to the tongue. Toward the end, a pleasant warming alcohol flavor comes to the tongue, leaving a nice sweet warming taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and fuller side with a lighter carbonation level. The overall mouthfeel very nicely compliments all the dark fruit and yeasty and light boozy flavors very well.

Overall – This is one tasty and very drinkable brew. It is renowned for a reason. Very well done. Tons of great flavor and an overall joy to drink.

500ml bottle served in a weizen glass.
no freshness info found.

pours a murky cola-brown, almost chestnut, and yields a towering, foamy beige head that slowly recedes to a lasting 1/2" or so. good retention and lacing.

nose is very respectable, offering a nice potpourri of banana, spice, bubblegum, and a lot of wheat maltiness.

flavor delivers more of the same but trumps the aroma: ample notes of banana, clove, maybe a touch of dark fruit, apples, and wheat malt. complex and tasty. 8.2% ABV exceedingly well-hidden. great beer.

medium-bodied mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation.

overall this is simply an upper-eschelon german brew. not a style i personally tend to gravitate toward, but this one is very good. not to be missed.

Oh, I'm so glad I came across this beer. Wheat beer fans rejoice, this is an excellent find.

Appearance - The beer pours out as a cloudy brown/dark amber color. Although the murky color may not seem the most appealing, the dark wheat color is still inviting. The head builds up quickly and fades away fast; no lacing on the glass.

Smell - Initially heavy wheat and malt. Citrus came through nicely as I continued. Seemed to pick almost a smokey scent but not sure; there were other scents that I couldn't put my finger on (I'll need to try the beer again).

Taste - Wonderful rich malty taste. Banana bread and small clove flavors come through well without being overpowering. With each sip there was a great transition going from a slight sour to a sweet malt flavor at the end. The taste of the alcohol is strong but all the flavors are so well balanced it doesn't stand out.

Mouthfeel - A little carbonation at the start; very smooth on the tongue

Drinkability - Overall this is a beer that I can and will drink again. Even if you're not a huge wheat or malt fan like myself you will enjoy this beer. While the alcohol strength is masked well by the complex flavors, it is still a strong beer, and one that I would rarely have more than one bottle of in a sitting. As much as I want to say this is a perfect beer, I want to see if Schneider and Sohn can improve anything on it.

As a fan of hefeweizens and good malt beers, Aventinus should not be overlooked. It is well priced and worth the money.

500mL bottle

Pours a murky dark ruby brown in color (though it can be as light as a dark amber depending upon the point in the glass) with about two fingers of moussy, long-lasting light tan head. Aroma is quite complex and very intriguing. There is lots of bready malt, spicy clove and vanilla phenols, lots of dark fruit esters, some banana-like esters and a touch of perfume-like (roses) alcohol. Taste is much like the aroma. Lots of bready malt, some melanoidins, and a soft wheat undertone. There may be a good bit of malt character here (both wheat and barley) but the focus is the yeast character. The dark fruit esters (think plums, prunes and maybe raisins) are a bit more restrained in the flavor than the aroma but still present. The phenols range from clove to indistinct spicyness to hints of vanilla. The esters that are a bit more prominent are those classic to weissbiers: banana with just a mere hint of bubblegum. Alcohol is again present but it again lends a pleasant flavor component without being overwhelming. Mouthfeel is pretty good, body is a bit on the light side at only medium and carbonation is moderate. Alcohol is noticeable but its presence adds to the depth of flavor and isn't at all hot or solventy. Drinkability is pretty darn good. This brew is complex but nicely balanced and fairly nuanced.

Poured into an appropriate weizen glass, big beautiful dark amber, head that won't quit.

Smell is some caramel malts...and maybe my nose is all screwed up, but do I smell freshly cut grass? I could swear that I do, but maybe my nose is having an off-day. All in all, muted, but nice-smelling.

Taste is of lightly burnt caramel and a grassy hop; some good banana esters make their presence known. A little creamy in feel. Really sits quite light on the palate, which I view as a major feat considering this beer's strength. Indeed, the mouthfeel is nearly unrivaled.

This shouldn't be sessionable at all at this strength, but it damn well feels that way. File under "Dangerous Beer." This one's a winner.

Edit: I have to amend my review. My nose was really screwed up the day of my first tasting of this; this is very aromatic. I get a MUCH stronger nose of a woody raisin, very, very nice!

2003 Vintage, consumed at Bavarian Lodge with my wife in observance of our seventh anniversary.

A - Pours hazy, dark straw in color. Good carbonation after seven years in the bottle. Outstanding lacing and retention of an initial 2-finger rocky off-white head.

S - Lovely aroma of toffee, rum-soaked raisins, and a hint of freshly baked sourdough bread, some clove and anise as well. The bouquet is strong, and very inviting.

T - Very mellow, smooth wheat malt carries, with strong supporting turns from the toffee, rum, and dark fruits present in the nose. I wonder how this all balances when fresh. This is a prime advertisement for aging beer, however.

M and D - Again smooth is the operative term here, medium body with just enough carbonation, finishes dry and a little sweet. Just a great beer to drink, the alcohol is well hidden, but still warms nicely.

Appearance – great ruby/orange body with rushing carbonation ; frothy off-white head with good staying power; minimal lace

Smell – banana; spice; yeast; caramel apple

Taste – banana and spice and some alcohol was nice; pleasantly malty for most of the ride; dominant yeast and malt close with a very light dose of bitterness; yeast and some tartness/sourness in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel & Drinkability – smooth moderate body to open; modest bridge; crisp, satisfying end

I’ve had only a few weizenbocks but this is certainly an expansion of my senses.

Petaluma Taps. Pours a dark ruddy caramel brown, dense head subsided slowly leaving a bubbly surface covering, minor lacing.

Aroma is spicy, dominanted by cloves atop dark fruits, banana and much grain. Complex, something for everyone.

Taste is rich and spicy as well with a hint of anise. Zero bitterness. The strong long lived estry aftertaste is the highlight of this brew, very nice. Creamy mouthfeel.
superb brew

Pours the color of a strong cup of tea with a two-finger head, the bubbles turn more into a nice froth on the top once the initial pour dies down. Smells of muted dark fruits, cloves, and a light winey character. The taste is round and very smooth. The dark fruits and cloves dominate but are all slightly rounded and nothing seems to overpower the rest, great depth with a slight sweetness and a dry finish - all this without tiring the palate. The mouthfeel is creamy and very nice. This is a great beer! The alcohol is hidden and no doubt this is a well made beer overall. Add to that the fact it's widely available and reasonable priced make me think this will be added to the lineup often. A local shop has some 2004s wrapped in paper that I think I'll have to grab just to see what this thing does with some age.

Big head as this pours. Lasts a little bit before leaving just a little bit. Not much lacing. The body is dark brown, but not quite opaque.

The spiciness in the smell reminds me of some strong Belgians I've had lately but isn't quite as strong. Much fruitiness in there as well.

Not so much fruitiness in the taste. The spiciness really does come out now. The alcohol is not very evident in the taste. A little banana in the aftertaste.

Carbonation in this beer is on the high side but not too much. The body is a bit watery for my taste but doesn't detract from the overall experience. The alcohol is comforting in the finish.

Not a session-type beer, but great for after dinner or relaxing late at night (as I am now). A slow nightcap, and drinkable for what it is.

Overall this is very good. My first in this style but this is a great balance between the Weiss and the Bock styles and I would recommend it.
